Amazon Kindle Paperwhite Leather Cover, Persimmon (does not fit Kindle or Kindle Touch)

I’ve owned most of the Amazon-offered Kindle covers, before this one, my main Kindle/Cover was the Touch. I liked it, it worked, etc. But it’s just a cover. Usually, slightly overly expensive. I debated on ordering the Paperwhite cover, but I put in a pre-order and figured I’d check it out. I barely even read the description, honestly. I ordered the “Persimmon” color because it had the shorted lead time. Yeah, I know… a definite “whatever” order, right?

My Paperwhite had Special Offers turned on. I had read a little about the cover and Paperwhite previous to receiving mine. I popped the kindle into the cover, opened the cover… and it didn’t come on automatically like I expected. I was presented with a screen that I needed to swipe. That’s annoying. I paid the extra to have the special offers turned off and it works like I expected now. Really awesome, actually. You open it and it brings you to right where you were. No button-pushing or screen-swiping required.

The outside is textured so I feel like I have a better grip on it than my Touch and it feels sturdy. I like the color pretty well, I was worried it would be a bright orange, but it’s a nice color – and it won’t get lost in the sea of black covered tech items I have laying around this house!

The auto-on when you open it makes it well worth the price, in my opinion. I’m extremely happy with this purchase!

Recommended for Paperwhite owners, of course!
